At a funeral we mark the end of a person’s earthly life. Relatives and friends gather together to express their grief and to commend the departed to God’s hands.
Funerals at the Cathedral may be quite small and quiet, or they may be occasions of great solemnity with music and ritual. The Cathedral is available for the funeral services of people who live in the Cathedral Parish or who are regular worshippers here. A Funeral Director should be contacted in the first instance, who will then liaise with the Cathedral clergy about the funeral. Memorial services can also be arranged in the Cathedral.
